Volunteer With 4-H

Adults who assume volunteer roles within Mississippi State University Extension Service (MSU-ES) have the opportunity for a rewarding experience. It is understood that a volunteer’s role is easier to manage when expectations and responsibilities have been outlined and communicated prior to the job assignment. The success of the 4-H youth development program is attributed to its volunteers. A Registered 4-H volunteer is anyone who contributes time, energies, or talents to the 4-H program and is not paid by MSU-ES.

4-H volunteer invests in community kids

When Rose Coffey-Graham first began teaching children, she was just 7 years old and pressed into service by local families who needed someone to watch their kids while they picked cotton. Her teaching materials?

“I had a big tree to sit under and some cardboard, and I acted as if I was the adult,” she remembers.
